NARS Total Domination is a moderately warm-toned, medium red with a satin finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $26.00 and contains 0.24 oz.
NARS Total Domination Air Matte Lip Color ($26.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a bright, medium red with warmer undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had a smooth, more velvety consistency that was very lightweight and airy as it spread readily across my lips for an even layer of opaque coverage.
It wasn't intended to be opaque, though, so that was a con (even if some might prefer the higher coverage). This particular shade dried down more noticeably compared to other shades in the range, which tended to retain a bit of a sheen for the first hour of wear, but this looked more semi-matte within minutes. It actually ended up wearing better than most of the range and was less prone to emphasizing imperfections and settling into lip lines as it wore away (though it still did to some degree). The color stayed on well for four hours before degrading but most color was intact for closer to five hours and felt non-drying over time.
